Skyrim Dragonborn – How To Kill Ebony Warrior

By   /   3 years ago


So you think you’re the meanest, most powerful living individual in Tamriel, eh? If you’ve maxed your level to 81 in Skyrim, and have your hands on the Dragonborn DLC, then you might want to put that claim to the test.

Once you reach the capped level, a mysterious character called the Ebony Warrior will find you, and speaking to him will initiate a quest. Apparently, this warrior wants to duel with you, believing that he has done everything he can do, except fighting a foe as mighty as yourself.

For more help on Skyrim, read our Character Builds, Tweaks and Unique Weapons Locations Guide.

If you think you have what it takes to beat down this man in black, then prepare yourself! However, high as your level and equipment may be, this tall, heavy armored fellow is no regular soldier that took an arrow in the knee; he’s easily the toughest character in the entire game. Here are the reasons why:

  • The Ebony Warrior has resistance to each and every element
  • The character has an abnormally fast regeneration
  • To top it all off, the guy seems to wield a vampiric sword
  • The dude has some crazy defenses (you’ll know why if and when you loot his corpse!)

In order to defeat this mighty warrior, you’ll have to have the best gear Skyrim can give you. Here are a few tips to help you defeat the Ebony Warrior:

Every year is a fresh start for the two giant console platforms who are constantly looking to...

  • Get the best things you can, be it armor, weapons – whatever
  • If you have some  powerful bow, use that; try to get as far away from him as possible, and then use the bow to do some damage
  • You should seriously learn all three words of the Dragon Aspect shout (if you haven’t already). This is an insanely powerful shout that gives you massive offensive and defensive buffs, and will make your other shouts more effective as well. Such an overpowered skill is a must-have for the most difficult enemy in the game
  • If you are lucky, a dragon will be flying nearby the place you fight him. In that case, you should learn to tame dragons and fly them. Dragons will make the fight much easier
  • The Ebony Warrior seems to have defenses for everything except falls. Try to get him to trip off a ledge or something. This should really hurt him.

If you manage to defeat the Ebony Warrior, check his corpse for some awesome items. These are given below:

Ebony Shield of Fire Suppression
Enchantment: Increases fire resistance by 50%

Ebony Armor of Regeneration
Enchantment: Health regenerates 40% faster

Ebony Gauntlets of Extreme Wielding
Enchantment: One-handed attacks do 35% more damage

Ring of Peerless Wielding
Enchantment: One-handed attacks do 40% more damage

Necklace of Shock Suppression
Enchantment: Increases shock resistance by 50%

Ebony Boots of Frost Suppression
Enchantment: Increases frost resistance by 50%

Ebony Helmet of Waterbreathing

Ebony Sword of the Vampire
Enchantment: Absorb 25 points of health per strike
